Helpful ‘stokians made breakdown a breeze

I would like to relate my thanks and admiration to some particular people and businesses in the town of Revelstoke.

Editor,

I would like to relate my thanks and admiration to some particular people and businesses in the town of Revelstoke.

First a bit of background on why I feel this way.

Recently my daughter and I were travelling to Calgary where she is to finish some schooling. Around Sicamous we had an electrical issue with our vehicle but kept travelling to Revelstoke. We pulled into the Super 8 parking lot, the engine died. Through the help of two young men and a father that lived nearby, we confirmed it was the alternator. They offered to install the alternator if we could get one.

We phoned Lordco who said they could get one in the next day from Kelowna. We were close to being on schedule, just not on budget!

The next morning we walked to the Jacobson Ford dealership to inquire about install as it was confirmed the job was to be a testy one. They had no room that day but room the next. They agreed to let us move our vehicle to their lot and inside for the night. Around 9 a.m., Lordco phoned to inform us the alternator was in! Wow, what great service!

With part in hand and new battery installed we quickly drove to the dealership to leave car for the night.

At 1:30 p.m. the next day, Dave from Ford phoned to say the job was done and we could get back on the road!

So from the heart I would like to thank all involved in their assistance and attempts to aid us. There is definitely some good people in Revelstoke and we could not have broke down in a better place.

Frank and Lane Kovich,

Nanaimo.
